The products

Are the drinking and feeding bowls suitable for all pets?

Yes, the drinking and feeding bowls are suitable for all pets. Whether you have a dog, cat, rabbit or hamster, our ceramic feeders are safe and hygienic for any pet.

Why should I choose a ceramic drinking and feeding bowl for my pet?

There are several reasons why a ceramic food bowl can be a good choice for your pet:

  • Hygiene: ceramic is non-porous, meaning no moisture or dirt can penetrate it. As a result, a ceramic food bowl is easy to clean and stays hygienic for longer;
  • Durability: ceramic is strong and can take a beating. Therefore, a ceramic bowl often lasts longer than a plastic or metal manger;
  • Food safety: the ceramic feeders are 100% food safe and contain no harmful substances such as BPA or lead;
    Ceramic is stylish and therefore fits nicely into interiors.

How do I clean my AVA bowl?

It is important to clean your bowl regularly to ensure your pet does not ingest bacteria. The best way to clean the bowl is with warm water and washing-up liquid, then rinse well.

Are the food bowls dishwasher safe?

Yes, the food bowls are dishwasher safe. However, please note that the food bowls can be damaged in the dishwasher by other objects bumping into them and the anti-slip studs can come loose.

Can I use my bowl outdoors?

Yes, our ceramic feeders can be used outdoors. They are resistant to various weather conditions. However, in case of frost, it is recommended to bring the bowl inside as cracks may appear. In addition, it is important to ensure that the manger is placed on a stable surface to prevent it from tipping over or breaking.

How long does an AVA bowl last on average?
The lifespan of our bowls depends on several factors, including their use and care. In general, the bowls last a long time and are very durable. However, it is important to clean them regularly and treat them gently to ensure they stay in good condition and last longer. If you take good care of your AVA bowl, you can enjoy it for years.
Could the colours or shapes in real life differ from the photos on the website?

Display of digital images depend on your phone and/or laptop settings. In addition, the bowls are handmade and each bowl goes through the ceramic process in its own way, giving each bowl its own original look and feel. The colors and shapes on the website may therefore differ from the actual colors.

What is the best way to maintain my wooden tray?
To keep the oak tray in excellent condition, we recommend cleaning and treating the tray regularly. Below are our tips for the best results:

  • Avoid contact with water as much as possible. Your four-legged friend is bound to spill water while drinking, but make sure it doesn’t stay there too long to avoid stains or cracks;
  • Clean the tray regularly. Tip: Squeeze half a lemon on the tray and sprinkle with sea salt. Leave this on for 15 minutes. This combination kills bacteria and absorbs unwanted odor and stains. Clean with a wet cloth and then dry thoroughly;
  • Next, oil the tray with a natural oil approved for food contact to keep the tray in good condition. AVA bowls’ maintenance oil is excellent for this purpose! To do this, use a dry cloth or a piece of kitchen roll and rub the oil into the wood. Let the oil soak in well and the tray is ready to use again. Our advice is to treat the tray every 2 months for best results.
How do I attach the legs to the wooden tray?
The legs of the tray have a standard screw thread, so the leg may not always come out exactly at the right angle when you tighten it. Our advice is to keep turning with some extra force (this will not damage the tray), so the leg is in the right direction and stable. See the manual here.
